    Just finished attending California Crimewriters Conference over the weekend in Pasadena with excellent craft classes, agents and authors, including Jefferson Parker, Jan Burch, Lee Goldberg, Kerry Madden, SJ Rozan, to name a few. I look forward to New York where some of the best thriller writers will also be hanging out.
